Yusuf Kawooya, a Democratic Party activist was released today afternoon after his lawyers tasked the Uganda Peoples Defense Forces to “bring forward the real people” behind the gruesome torture of the suspect.

Kawooya was arrested by over 5 gun-wielding men on Kimathi Avenue on Thursday before the video went viral on social media.

Kawooya, has since been in detention.

He was ordered to report back to the offices of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) on October 31.
